“It could be the coldest New Year’s Eve on record. Perhaps we could use a little bit of that global warming our country was going to pay trillions of dollars to protect us against.”
– Donald Trump
During President Barack Obama’s reign, every tin foil hatter and Chicken Little that came out of his cave to get free green money has gone undercover. Obama’s investment in climate change hoaxes cost taxpayers billions as leftist politically connected green companies failed or closed due to habitual corruption. Under the guise of green energy, Obama doled out tax dollars like it was Halloween candy to leftist supporting companies. Attorney general Eric Holder, who inhibited investigations of green scandals, resigned. Due to Obama’s green fiasco, an under-culture of environmentalists claiming the earth is in peril due to our appetite for carbon-based fuels was given legitimacy at the expense of the U.S.
In 2009, Obama and his green energy czars laid out plans to retool our economy into something resembling a third world nation. He revealed his true stripes and snookered America into believing government’s foray into venture capitalism could revitalize a shrinking economy. His stimulus set aside $90 billion to subsidize politically preferred energy projects for companies like Willard Kelsey Solar, Beacon Power, Azure Dynamics, Compact Power and Solandra. The government invested tax dollars in green enterprise and turned an economic downturn into a long, lumbering recession. How soon we forget:
“Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government.”
– James Madison
In 2010, Obama and his Democratic Congress, led by the fearless Nancy Pelosi, tried to pass a bill that would set a nationwide limit on carbon-dioxide emissions. Companies would buy, sell or barter permits to pollute. But angry citizens from coast to coast bombarded the House with calls, letters and emails to bury that bill in the legislative graveyard. Yet leftist states bought into this hoax and were rewarded with federal pork for supporting this plan. Nine Northwestern states developed a cap-and-trade program called the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative. California enacted its own cap-and-trade system.
“We’ll lead the world in protecting it from global warming.”
– Jerry Brown
After Obama invested more than $100 billion in subsidies for wind, solar and biofuel projects, as well as research for new green energy, he took his show on the road. Obama persuaded a reluctant China to join 195 countries in agreeing to international energy restrictions at the 2015 Paris Agreement. Obama persuaded the United Nations’ Climate Change Convention to agree to the first globalist pact aimed at reducing greenhouse gases. This legitimized fake green science forever.
“I‘d like to see us raise prices on fossil fuels so high we’ll vastly reduce carbon emissions.”
– Barack Obama
While Obama brokered the Paris accord and ratified its adoption in September 2016, he never got Congress involved. What was a good deal for third world countries and the EU smelled like a dead fish to every energy dependent capitalist nation. With so much political capital and legacies staked on achieving anything, globalists settled on something worth less than the cost of a new Yugo. This agreement only required countries to submit plans to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions. And each plan was at the discretion of each country without set standards it must meet on anything. While Obama committed heavily to support from the U.S., others were only offering lip-service.
“America will lead the way in protecting the earth from the ravages of climate change.”
– Barack Obama
Within days, American industry expressed concerns for this non-binding commitment to control so many of our resources. Legitimate energy producers in the U.S. – coal, natural gas and oil industries – cried foul and expressed skepticism of an international agreement that encroached on our ability to control our economic destiny. They’d been on a self-developed conservation plan for decades that had substantially decreased emissions that worked in union with our economy. Although this treaty was worth less than the paper it was written on, the restrictions on U.S. energy markets prevailed.
“We’ve taken bold action by putting historic restrictions on our energy producers.”
– Barack Obama
By the end of Obama’s reign, the fake science of climate change had been dubbed a real science on the world stage. But little did he know those responsible for this hoax would openly expose its real purpose. In Brussels a year later, Christiana Figueres, the U.N. Climate Change Conference chair, admitted the goal is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism. “It is the first time in history we are intentionally going to change the economic development model that has reined since the Industrial Revolution. It is a most difficult task we’ll undertake to transform the world’s economy.”
This did not phase the greenies. They knew the press would not report this.
Recently, President Donald Trump kept a long, anticipated campaign promise and pulled America out of the Paris Climate Accord. He informed the EU he will begin negotiations to re-enter the Paris accord or a new treaty on terms that are better for American businesses and taxpayers. Trump argued the agreement was negotiated poorly and was too costly for the American people, with zero tangible gains. He said the other 195 countries in the agreement “went slap happy” when the U.S. initially joined the accord.
“We are pulling out for the simple reason that it put our country, the United States of America, which we all love, in a very, very big economic disadvantage.”
– Donald Trump
At the annual meeting of the Paris Climate Accord this year, when the U.S. representative walked to the podium to explain what the Trump administration had accomplished with his energy programs, he was jeered and insulted. This shows how hypocritical fake science is. Climate change activists never stop bragging how their science is based on facts. Then why aren’t they cheering America instead of booing us? In Trump’s America, energy-related carbon emissions in 2017 fell by 0.5 percent. But in the pious European Union, they went up by 1.5 percent? In fact, per-capita carbon emissions in Trump’s America are at a 70-year low today and falling! This is not common core made up science.
Barack Obama said, “We need an energy plan that works for everyone.” Trump proved energy deregulation does more to fight climate change than energy debate summits. To the world globalists, this is an inconvenient truth. And this is very inconvenient if you’re trying to hold the U.S. hostage to finance “changing an economic development model that has reined since the Industrial Revolution.” Trump has proven:
“Against logic there is no armor like ignorance.”
– Laurence J. Peter
A healthy republic requires that the pursuit of political power is insulated from the exercise of that political power by The Hatch Act of 1939. Obama’s policies were feudalistic and political, based on a bogus, politically manufactured climate crisis devoid of any supportable scientific evidence. This demonstrated his objectives were political and not in the best interests of capitalism. The only economic model in the last 150 years that has worked is capitalism. The evidence is prima facie. Capitalistic countries reward the producers, they don’t punish them. Since President Trump took office, he has made every attempt to do what is best to make America a great nation for every American citizen.
“Any system that penalizes success and accomplishment is wrong. Any system that discourages work, discourages productivity, discourages economic progress, is wrong.”
